I am trying to Install Compuz Fusion.
According to the Turkish Wiki I should edit
the following sections in Xorg.conf:

Section "ServerLayout"
Section "Extensions"
Section "Device"

The problem is that I can't find "Serverlayout" and "Extensions"

I already installed the Nvidia drivers and I have 3d support.

Am I missing something here?

My problem was solved due to help from the Dutch forum.

A simple translation:

First of all install the drivers for your videocard, so you have
3d support

Next; paste the next line into Konsole:

sudo  nvidia-xconfig --composite --no-dynamic-twinview --damage-events --allow-glx-with-composite --add-argb-glx-visuals
(xconfig is being modified to the right settings with this command)

Add the next line to the repository address:
 http://paketler.pardus.org.tr/contrib-2007/pisi-index.xml.bz2

Now we update all packages.

Now install Compiz Fusion, this can also be done
with a simple command in the Konsole:
sudo pisi install -c desktop.opencompositing

After installing reboot the computer and you should all be set.

With many thanks to Pjotr of the Dutch forum
